What is the "Blast Archive", if one is intrigued by seeing Jarboe perform 1,000 years?

Every photo Skin ever did was marginally blurred, ever so slightly. Like, something's not quite right. Must've been a pain to get the effect 'just so'.

In California during the time of Prohibition, Americans would have to drive down to Mexico to buy a drink. So they'd make a weekend of it. They'd make a beeline for Mexico on Friday afternoon and spend all weekend drinking Tequila. Sunday night would tick over into the new day and they would drive b...

I'm talking about 1,000 Years. Thanks for reminding me. I have no idea what Gira or Jarboe are doing these days. (Blood, Women, Roses was released in 1986.) I recall Patricia Morrison doing a guest reviewer spot on a music rag once, and one record she had to review was one of Gira's Swans discs. She...

I'd often wondered if the lyric to Hotel California was about Los Angeles, but I recently heard that the lyric was specific to the Beverley Hills Hotel, the 5-star place housing the Polo Lounge. True?

You know, I don't live in the UK, although I did for a while. But that was then.... On the local front here, I once went into a record store hoping to get something by James Ray. So I asked the dude behind the counter. I also asked for the Sisterhood album, describing it as "white rap". OMG... you s...

Well, I guess the song needed to come with the usual disclaimer of "... similarities to anyone living or dead is entirely coincidental and unintended, et al...." Sometimes you can read too much into a song or artist (indeed, some artists probably want this to happen) and, other times, artists compla...

Well, I like the song, too, even if it polarizes opinion in the Sisters fan camp. But I must admit I've never been too good at interpreting the lyrics of artists, primarily due to their fondness for speaking in riddles and metaphor. I often think, if you've got something to say, why don't you just s...

Too long? Well, I was recently on another forum, asking if there were any Sisters fans about. Several replied in the affirmative, including one guy who said he DJs at goth clubs. He said he also thought Sisters songs were too long. He also expressed dismay at 'Temple of Love' being played to death i...

Sisters early videos

Allegedly, according to someone I once shared a house with, when That Guitarist left the Sisters and formed the m*****n, he said one of the great things about it was that he'd now be able to make videos, something the Sisters never did much of. But the guy who told me this also told me that there wa...

Technical, boys

Has anyone had experience using the Oberheim DMX drum machine used by the Sisters circa 1984-85? One of the things that drew me to the Sisters was their drum sounds. Their tom-toms never had any resonance (bouncy-ness) , just a dull thud. And the hi-hats were just a spidery hissing noise. To me this...

Walk Away?

Can somebody explain Gary Marx's decision to leave the Sisters, circa 1985? As I am new around here, it's something I've wondered about, as I believe it was a topic raised from time to time in Sisters lyrics. Was it a case of fame-o-phobia, or did Marx simply not get along with Eldritch? Or did succ...

If it isn't too late, I would definitely like a copy of this. I desperately need something to cheer me up (can the Sisters do that ?!?) so count me in.

Can trade or pay. (I assume by trade you mean swap? Please advise - I'm new around here!)
